This brief account of Arracan was originally published in the Bulletin de la SociÃ©tÃ© de GÃ©ographie 5.35 & 36 (March-April) in 1826. Thus, its publication dates from the last year of the First Anglo-Burmese War (1824-1826), although it was likely based on information preceding that conflict. Edited and introduced for the SOAS Bulletin of Burma Research by Michael W. Charney.

|The ' Rohingya' Identity British Experience In Arakan 1826 1948 By Derek Tonkin|
There is a very simple answer to the matter of British practice. There was no such identity as ‘Rohingya’ known to the British Governments of either India until 1937 or of Burma after the separation from India on 1 April of that year. In the 122 years between their conquest of Arakan in 1826 and Burmese independence in 1948, not a single reference to 'Rohingya' is to be found in any British official report, regional gazetteer, census, legislation, private correspondence or personal reminisce...

|áThe Busshist Art of Ancient Arakan - U San Tha Aung|
The Arakan State is situated on the boundary of Bangladesh and Burma. It is a constituent unit of the Socialist Republic of the Union of Burma. It is separated from Burma proper by a range of barrier against inter-communication between the people living on either side of it. Though descended from the same stock, worshipping the same faith and speaking the same language as the Burmese, the Arakanese have witnessed the flowering of a distinct culture, and have preserved a distinct dialect...

|Archaeological Evidnce of Buddhist Links Between Sri Lanka and Arakan by C. Raymond|
Arakan (or Rakhine, in the Arakanese language) is the region occupying three hundred and sixty miles (c.600km) of the northeastern Bay of Bengal coast. Situated between India (the present-day Bangladesh) and Burma proper, Arakan has served historically as a vital conduit for the propagation of India culture, art, and religion throughout Southeast Asia. Because of this critical geographic position, Arakan's history has been intertwined with both the fortunes of the Hindu and the Muslim dynast...

|"Religious and Scholarly Exchanges between the Singhalese Sangha and the Arakanese and Burmese Theravadin Communities: Historical Documentation and Physical Evidence" by Catherine Raymod|
Presently a component state within the Union of Burma, Arakan was - for at least a full millennium preceding its extinction in 1784 - an independent kingdom with a wel-documented and illustrious history. Buddhism apparently came to Arakan comparatively early, and in the legends and traditiona of the Arakanese, an exemplary, uncorrupted strain of Theravada was maintained there over the centuries, even until today.Numerous references are made in the classical chronicles of the Singhalese on one si...

|Arakan's imagined place in the Theravada world Between Burma, Sri Lanka and the debate on the continuity of the sasana" by Jacues P. Leider|
Both in the East and the West, and for a long time, textbook knowledge nurtured a perception of Theravada Buddhism as a monolith that had been little eroded by time. But anthropological and historical studies of eighteenth and nineteenth century institutional reform, intellectual flexibility and homogenizing processes that were shared inside the Theravada world demonstrate change and have opened up new perspectives, especially in Sri Lanka and Thailand, less so in Burma, though...
